– Julius Evola

“I would define paleomasculinity as a collective and personal sense of manhood that is grounded in history and derived from forebears, kin, and culture. A pre-feminist understanding of what it means to be a man, and a conservative resistance to re-definition of manhood based temporary circumstances.

The (feminist) New Man believes that we are not men, but merely people. He believes that manhood is of marginal significance in the modern world, that gender roles are outdated and unnecessary. He believes that men and women should be treated equally, and that—reproductive plumbing and a few physical differences aside—men and women are basically the same.

The (anti-feminist) PaleoMan finds meaning and worth in historical masculine ideals. He believes that men and women are significantly different, and that society works better when men and women work together, filling different roles.”
Jack Donovan on Paleo-Masculinity. A neologism, but an interesting one.

“Women are not stupid, but they were not clever enough to realise that feminism did not bring freedom, but the opposite.”
